The proposal for the skin is based on repetitive square panels that fit within the grid structure. They will be bolted in three joints of every square to create a curvilinear shape. The panels function as a cover, but at the same time allowing the light to filter into the space and protect people from rain.

In terms of the material we decided to use a translucent plastic. The properties of this material allow the skin to adapt to the shape of the structure, whether it is closed for transportation or fully open at the site.

The assembly will happen on-site, but we explored two different approaches. First one is where the skin is attached at the top of the structure. This one allows more movement between the skin and the grid. The second iteration the panels are attached in between the wooden slats. This gives more stability to the skin, but brings the conflict of not being able to fully close the grid.
